Maybe its just my gun but I found best accuracy for 25 yard plinking to be 45 grains. for 100 yards my groups stayed tight between 105 and 120 grains so I settled for 110 gr for warm weather shooting. In cold weather, (below 20 degrees) 90 grains works best. I have a buddy who won't go over 75 grains and he can hit pop cans at 100 yards with his consistently, I can't. I also know a few who don't shoot anything less than 120 grains, I'm not that brave and my shoulder isn't that young. I also shoot the pants off of them but they hunt bear with theirs at close range and that load is their comfort level. Me, I'm happy with venison roast. All of us just use round ball.
